Sky Blue

12 May

Last weekend, unmanipulated Blue Skies

Jessica Lea Mayfield is one of those musical prodigies that make me scratch my head.  She started performing at 8 years old and by the time she was 15 she had recorded an album in her brother’s bedroom.  They printed up 100 copies and one of those somehow got to Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

You can guess the rest; he ended up producing her next record.  Now she’s up to her second (or third if you count the one she did on her own) album.

Here’s a song from this latest release, “Blue Skies Again.”

Oh, by the way, she’s only 21 now.  Maybe youth isn’t wasted on the young.
